Proof of Concept

We demonstrated the power of our Micromining® platform to discover new ways to control the mosquito that transmits dengue, Zika, and yellow fever.

In Three Months.

The Problem:

As the number one threat to humankind, mosquitoes kill roughly 725,000 people each year by spreading blood-borne disease and viruses at an unparalleled rate. With high rates of resistance to many current pesticides, we are in need of novel solutions to control this threat.

Our Solution:

We combined expert microbiology and computational biology to isolate and identify microbes active against Aedes larvae in three months time. We filed patents on these novel microbes in April 2018.
